a comic drama by Alan Ayckbourn

A role playing game of dragons and demons is played by an unlikely group of people in the living room of Stanley and his wife Hazel. Warren, who has invented the game, is a loner who spends a lot of time in his attic den, pouring over his computer. He eventually admits that he thinks he is an alien. Rick (original name Alice) lives in the seedy basement flat beneath a house once inhabited by her parents. When Rick's work colleague, Maisie, joins the group she has a disruptive effect on proceedings, as does Austin, Hazel's bullying brother who delights in tormenting Stanley. Maisie's violent husband confronts Rick in the basement, Warren locks his mother in a bedroom and electrifies the doorhandle and Hazel loses her mind.
